Love Newton watching Santa fly through the sky.
All of the tags are so clever.

I make gifts as well as all of my cards and tags. I just bought some canvas bags and I've been researching how best to paint them. I'll be giving these to a few special friends at Christmas (hopefully I get them done).

thanks.

Such adorable tags! Newton's Nooks stamps are so cute! Love your little cup with the tag! Yes, I love to make Christmas gifts as well as tags and cards. I try to make each of my family members an ornament each year.

KandA said...

Love these adorable images and the shaker tag is such a great idea. I don't tend to make gifts any more and just stick to making cards and tags xx

Joyce said...

These tags are simply adorable. All of them. I had no idea Newton's Nook had such cute stamps. In answer to your question, sometimes I make gifts out of tags...like a tag set. Wrapped up with a tag on, of course.

Deepti said...

Awesome inspiration :) love the jingle bells on your tag !

diana said...

Great tags!
I haven't tried gifts yet. ;-)

Marisa said...

Darling little NN Critters :) I usually do not make gifts unless I know the person is crafty and will appreciate all that goes into the gift and it fits their decor. I do however give packs of cards as Christmas gifts so I guess you could say I do make some ;)

Lisa's Creative Niche said...

Yes I do! Love how cute these are!

Denise Bryant said...

I have made gifts to give, especially baked items. Used to do other projects as well, but I found my work schedule really put a crimp in that! Now I am retired (as of Oct 16th), so who knows?
Love your sweet tag today! Lots of inspiration, and looking forward to visiting some of these blog links!

I'm a Little Teapot said...

I am really enjoying coming here every day for inspiration. This is such a fabulous event...thank you for hosting!!

Yes, I make gifts in addition to cards and tags. I just upcycled two items: a frame and a wall hook with a framed tree scene. I have now started to upcycle a clear glass jar. Too fun!

Kara Lynne said...

These are all so cute! I love your little tag and cup, it's adorable! I mainly make tags and cards, but I just made some money holders too, no gifts though, except packs of cards.

TK said...

Another set of beautiful tags by a peck of wonderful people!

Super sweet tags!!!! I usually don't make my own gifts because I'm always running out of time. However, I do make a bunch of holiday cards and tags/packaging for the gifts I give to friends/family.

Sandi said...

Making my Christmas cards and tags keeps me very busy so I do not make many gifts. However this year I AM giving a full scrapbook of layouts to my brother-in-law and sister-in-law of their 4 children. It has taken me nearly 3 years to complete. I am hoping they will like it.

Kit said...

I love these tags. Newton's Nook has it going on. I do make some gifts along with making my cards and tags.

Marcia HIll said...

I just can't seem to get enough of looking at all the tags each day on your blog Tracy...it inspires me to just keep making more and more!! :0) And yes, I do make some of my Christmas gifts. I love to knit...especially socks and have been giving those as gifts the past few years. I like to make Christmas ornaments too, and had a lot of fun making quilted ornaments last year. :0)

Sylwia-eR said...

Urocze i słodkie..Wspaniałe świąteczne ozdoby :)

Aileen (mum) said...

I like to make gifts but it all depends on what time is available. But my daughter who has special needs always makes gifts for everyone in the family and if she forgets someone or runs out of time she writes them a letter so they get something:)

Sandy said...

Love all the adorable images on today's tags.
I do not make gifts, just cards and tags.

Linda Rubarski said...

Love all the tags usually make sets of cards for some Christmas presents.

Lindsey said...

I like today's tags! I might just have to be inspired to make another cat tag... it's been days! I rarely handmade Christmas gifts. Not sure my abilities would be "giftworthy". :D

Megan said...

I know this is only a small aspect, but I've enjoyed seeing all sorts of different ways to tie a ribbon on a tag! I haven't done very many actual gifts... I like smaller scale like cards :)

Meg Giroux said...

Oh my cuteness! I love all of these they are adorable!

I make tags, cards and mini albums for Christmas gifts.

stampwithsandy said...

Cute, cute tags! I love those Newton's Nook images. I started crocheting again and last year made everyone in the family a scarf!

Teresa Doyle said...

These tags are ALL AMAZING! Gawd, I love these. I need to go do some pinning! LOL Great work ladies!
I try to make a few gifts each year. I often give homemade jams, pickles and baked goods as a lot of my family aren't able to do these things anymore and they enjoy them!

Janet Zeppa said...

Adorable images and projects! I do make some gifts!

Michele Henderson said...

I don't make too many gifts, but I do make cards and tags! Love all the tags today! Adorable!

CUTENESS GALORE :)
LOVE these FUN & FABULOUS tags, I can't wait to hop along and learn about each one!!!
CUTE tag Tracey, LOVE the sentiment and heart :)
No, I sorry to confess that I don't make many gifts any more, most of my effort is put into handmade cards, tags, pillow boxes and gift card holders. The main gift I continue to make throughout the year is "everlasting flower arrangements" where I recycle some of the amber jars from my medications into vases and fill them with handmade paper flowers on pipecleaner stems, using aquarium stones to hold them upright and give stability.

Diane Jaquay said...

These tags are so adorable!! Love your "spice" tag, perfect for that cute little cup!! I do sometimes make gifts handmade gifts for Christmas presents in addition to cards and tags :)

Brandi R said...

I have made gifts for the past 3 or 4 years for Christmas. Love putting the work and heart into them.

Darling tags.....Newton's Nook has some of the cutest stamps ♥

Jinny Newlin said...

Such darling images! Love that gold and red combo on your cutie! I love to make gifts, but struggle with that as my nieces and nephews get older; always make tags; and make Christmas cards only for a limited few. The bulk of my Christmas card list goes to photo greetings.

Rahmat said...

Love these tags with the cute little cats! and I love the way you had tied your string with the jingles.

Barb Ghig said...

Such a cute sentiment, and I love the red heart and gold bells! Works perfectly with your cup, too...Love it!
Yes, I make gifts, as well as cards and tags. I like to create greeting card sets for the women in my family, and they love getting them :)

KT Fit Kitty said...

Cute, cute, cute! I love Newton's Nook - these tags are adorable! Yes, I make a few gifts for a few special people, but I make a lot of cards and just a few tags. I only started making tags last year after being inspired by your event!

As a kitty lover, I'm tickled by Newton. Fantastic tags!

Yes, I create calendars for a long list of friends and family, and occasionally a few other gifts. Love that snowman image with the bird on his carrot nose!

Birgit said...

Love all these critter tags!! Yes, I do make gifts every year! I love scouring the internet in search of ideas and inspiration.

Alexandra Madison said...

I love the festive tags from Newton's Nook! Their products are great :) I love making handcrafted presents, but because I'm a procrastinator, I usually do a hybrid present, half made, half bought.

TaeEun said...

I adore the cat from Newton's Nook! Your tag with sentiment as main element and the jingle bells are very cute! Only sometimes I make handmade gifts:)

cm said...

The NN tags are so delightful and your warm beverage gift is marvelous! I've made homemade gifts in the past, ranging from knitted scarves, to cross-stitch pictures (still a few awaiting attention) to card gift sets. This year, I'm running out of time! EEK!
hugs~c

Wait, what gifts? You mean I'm suppose to use all these gift tags I've been making? Chuckling. No making gifts for me, call me lazy.

These are the sweetest tags! They all make me smile! Thanks so much for sharing!

I usually try and make something small for family members and friends, usually some kind of food. And I make gift card holders.

Not this year. I used to make baked items and fudge, but I haven't done that for a long time. Just made Christmas cards this year.
